Top 5 Home Decorating Trends for 2016

Fashion fades, only style remains.  Coco Chanel

It is an odd beginning for a blog about home decorating trends but this is our point: if you style your house, or your dining table, with pieces that reflect your personality and taste, you will always be on trend!

So, keeping this in mind, here are the top five home decorating trends of 2016:

  1. Nature: look for organic shapes and textures and for natural materials such as wood, slate, cellulose
  2. Pastel Colors: Pantone® colors of the year 2016 are Rose Quartz and Serenity
  3. Hand-crafted products, made by artisans or small workshops
  4. Shine will continue to be fashion also in 2016
  5. Practical: nobody has time for complicated and fussy stuff! Easy entertaining and community-style casual dining are rapidly increasing trends.

These 5 trends apply from dinnerware, to furniture, to fabrics and to accessories.

Let’s have a closer look at each of them.

1. Nature

We are moving even a step forward sustainability and recycling, and heading towards adopting completely natural materials and bringing the outdoors in. Lots of people are growing their veggies in the garden, on their terrace or in the apartment. Small plants and design pots are spreading in the houses, not to mention wall gardens in private and public spaces such offices, restaurants, bistro and museums.
